Alas, a huge thank you to all who linked up and partied w/me along the way.
Moving right along...
I had a fairly productive month and have a few things to share w/you today to prove it.
One night I was jonesing for a finish. It felt like it had been forever since I'd finished a quilt. I needed to make one and I needed to make it fast! I dug out some blocks that were given to me. Originally there were seven and they measured approximately 16" x 19". I used six of them to make this scrappy little number. I used the quick turn/envelope/birthing method (no binding), and a combo of stitch-in-the-ditch and other straight line quilting. And Tada! I got my fix!
This is Zebrina. A fun applique quilt from Heidi Pridemore of The Whimsical Workshop. My grandson says Zebra's are only supposed to be black and white not "grey". He was not impressed w/mine. She's not grey though, She's made w/Sarah Watts' Shibuya in linen, from the Tokyo Train Ride collection.
I just have to add some quilting to the sky, and then she'll be hanging on the wall in my sewing room.
Oh! I also finished Scrappy Litter Blox a pattern by Lillyella. I pattern tested this before it was released in the June Stash Builder Box.
By the way, Stash Builder Box has been nominated for a Brassy award, which could mean $10,000 for their business if they are one of the winners. They have a great quilty box subscription program, and 20% of the proceeds go towards providing quilts for children in need. They also have great ways for others to join in the giving - you can apply to be an Ambassador and help promote the program, or you can sign up to be a HeartBuilder and actually help create the quilts that are given out! Go to www.voteforsbb.com to vote - you can vote once per day from now until Sunday, 10/9.
My last finish is from my UFO Challenge 2016 list. It's a wall hanging for my grand-daughter and has been a wip for 1-2 years.
The pattern is called Tiny Tulips by Quilting in the Rain. I won the pink fabric I used for the tulips from a QITR giveaway on IG! I got a little fancy w/the quilting on this one too. Anytime I say I did "fancy quilting", I mean I did FMQ in the form of meandering or a back & forth I learned in an Angela Walter's Craftsy Class. I also did my fave Faux Piped Binding.
That's all I've got today for finishes. But I do want to mention that I'm super duper excited Katy of KatyQuilts will be spending several months in AZ! I have all kinds of sew days and such planned for us. She's a talented and prolific quilter/blogger who inspires me immensely. Thanks Katy!
